I'm a little frustrated today. My penpal, a Christian, who is very dear to me attacked me in a recent letter. See, I referred to Jesus as my own superhero. Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE BATMAN. So in this letter to him, I said, F*ck Batman! Jesus Rocks. He thought I was belittling Jesus by referencing Batman... but I felt it was my way of saying, "I hold no other Idols before Christ now".
Then, I referred to God as the Big G. I really can't think of a bigger G. My penpal attacked that too, and accused me of having a Buddy Christ mentality. He said he was against manga and all cartoony depictions of Christ, but I feel as if he shouldn't judge how others may find or get close to the Lord. I mean if some desperate teenager out there reads a comic book with depictions of Christ.. and in turn he investigates this Jesus guy further and falls in love with His teachings as I did, If he gets saved because he first got the idea about Jesus from a comic book, who's to judge that young teenager but God Himself!??!
I refuse to lose my personality or good sense of humor because I recognize Christ. These Christians can be as stuck up about "their" Jesus as they want. I think humor is a great tactic to get others to listen about the Lord. Maybe it's not for everybody... but it is definitely for some.. and I say Let God tell me He didn't appreciate being called the Big G on judgment day. I mean, really is there a bigger G out there? If there is a bigger G than the Lord all mighty, please step forward. Oh I didn't think so.
I would also like to point out that Orthodox Jews NEVER say the G word..and when they write about him on Paper.. he is just a BIG G. Saying Big G does not mean I do not recognize His power and glory. Anyone who steps forth to judge me or scold me should really be concentrating on his/her own sins before trying to pick a part my language. And if you don't like the way I talk, please don't talk to me.
G bless all of you.
